Re: Quarantine photo thread

It ain't much, but I've been trying to do a decent "day-to-night" timelapse for weeks now. Cameo appearance by a tiny Sears/Willis tower in the lower left corner.

Re: Quarantine photo thread

The idea of doing an HDR timelapse has been on my mind, and since I'm not good at either HDR or timelapse photography; why not give it a shot anyway. It turned out predictably bad... and then I kept trying to fix it and only making it worse. I only know how to do like 2 things in Adobe Premiere. You...

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Any guesses on which is the best ??? F-AT? ... the best compromise of wrist friendly height, good switches and reasonable layout :) The best switch feel, sound and build quality is the F XT. If you ask me, the IBM F XT is the best keyboard IBM ever made. Hmm interesting to prefer XT over AT. Is it ...

Careful, you might become attached quickly!

This is my wimpy attempt at capturing the sky turning over. I wasn't able to sleep early this morning so I decided to give this a shot. I might try again with the sunset in a few hours.

Re: Keyboard Photogrammetry

I finally got around to scanning this really old keyboard. It gets boring to use the same exact method every time so I always try to introduce some sort of tweak into the process. This time I experimented with focus stacking, as a way to squeeze more depth of field into each photo. The focus stackin...

I've been working on trying to get out more lately. I popped over to a park near my house and shot this panorama.

It was good to see there were lots of people all around. Feels like things are slowly getting back to normal. We'll see.

Re: Quarantine photo thread

Nothing special, but I took this picture today as a way of learning about my new panorama camera mount thingie.

So this is actually a panorama, but just not very panorama-ish. Now that I know the basics, I'd like to do an outdoor one of a park or something.

That first one even looks micro switch-y. Do you know if that's the case? Although the four toggle switches are a bit of a wildcard.

I don't understand the appeal of putting your diodes on display. Is this some sort of fashion statement? What's the point? Why is did this trend take off?

Well I actually got a loose pcb mount switch in from SneakyRobb with an M0116 and loved it so much I just built a pcb around it. I already had a PCB made ("focus58"; focus layout, wkl, 60%, Alps SKCM/SKCL only) so all I did was make a copy of that, change the switch footprints, and reroute the trac...
